Epson LQ-690 in More Detail

With a mean time between failure (MTBF) of 20,000 power-on hours, the LQ-690 stands out among its competitors. A high MTBF means less trouble and maintenance which in turn increases your productivity. Built to last, the print head life of 400 million strokes/wire ensures reliable printouts. Given the high MTBF and print head life, LQ-690 offers uninterrupted operation and less maintenance. As the LQ-690 is compact, it fits perfectly on your desk. The platen gap adjustment lever is hidden inside the front cover which helps avoid any accidental change in settings. The ruler in the front paper guide makes paper setting easy. The LQ-690 also has an easy-to-use operation panel. The Epson LQ-690 offers the best in dot matrix performance where it matters most: speed, reliability, ribbon yield and user-friendliness. The LQ-690 is also versatile, handling cut sheets, continuous paper, labels, envelopes and cards. Its compact and user-friendly design makes it flexible enough to meet demanding space and application requirements. The LQ-690 is fast and effective with print speeds of up to 529 cps (12 cpi), higher throughput speed and the ability to handle different media. Print Speed Enhancer increases the speed of bit image printing and resident fonts in letter quality mode, making the LQ-690 the ideal solution for those who demand higher productivity from their dot matrix printer. PSE is a unique feature which allows fast printing of bit image data and printer resident fonts in letter quality mode. With a slight reduction in resolution, the speed is increased significantly. Ideal for those printing directly from windows applications, MS Word, MS Power point, MS Excel and PDF documents. At 10 million characters per ribbon, the LQ-690 has the highest ribbon yield in the flatbed segment. The benefits are long ribbon replacement cycles, low running cost and lower total cost of ownership.
